An Issue of Supply and Demand

The stress of the pandemic led to the suicide of a 35-year-old Canadian emergency physician this month.
 
She was just one of countless health workers who’ve endured a “burden that is really hard to put in words”—and its impact snowballs when left unaddressed, health justice activist Naheed Dosani told Global News reports.
 
The same holds true for patients. A new Lancet Public Health study of 14 million+ UK GP patients suggests an unmet need for care amid the pandemic could lead to worsening symptoms for patients and long-term strain on mental health facilities.
